Very fast visa turn around

Hello to All,

I just wanted to post a timeline for receipt of our tourist visas. Seems like very fast service from the Myanmar embassy in D.C. We mailed two visa applications, 2 passports, four passport photos (two for each person), Air Asia flight itinerary, travel invitation itinerary letter from Myanmar Delight, self addressed return envelope and one U.S. postal money order in the amount of 40 USD for two visas. They were sent priority mail both ways with certified mail tracking to Washington D.C. from San Francisco on 8/24. The package was delivered to the embassy on 8/26. Received passports with visas in the mail today, 8/30. Total of six days, two of which were a Saturday and a Sunday. The visas are stamped as of 8/27 with 3 months validity.

Peace, Evan

This seems almost the norm now. Last year the embassies were overwhelmed by the unexpected increase in numbers, and visas could take 3 weeks, Friends in the embassy told me they have had a big recruiting and training drive and are now well staffed, with people sitting twiddling their thumbs- which is I suppose why my uk visa arrived in 4 days
